Cake Batter Frozen Yogurt in 5 Minutes (No Machine)

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

Cake Batter Frozen Yogurt has to be some of the sweetest words you can hear. This frozen yogurt is a cross between a tangy yogurt and a birthday cake. It is rich, zippy and full of sprinkles!

Homemade Frozen Yogurt is so easy to make, and don’t worry, there is no ice cream machine needed. I don’t want to buy a piece kitchen equipment that only serves one purpose, hence this recipe was born.

My Cake Batter No Machine Frozen Yogurt takes only 5 minutes to make and has just a few simple ingredients.

Add all of the ingredients into a food processor, blend until smooth and freeze! It could not be simpler. And you don’t end up with icy, hard frozen yogurt. My recipes are triple tested so I made sure the result are smooth, scoopable and delicious.

If you like this frozen yogurt recipe, I also have great recipes for Chocolate & Banana, Strawberry, Mango & Lime, and Pineapple & Coconut.

Homemade Frozen Yogurt can be made on any yogurt you prefer. I use greek as it is higher in protein but feel free to use regular. I do recommend plain yogurt with no added flavor.

5 Minute Cake Batter Frozen Yogurt (No Machine). The easiest Frozen Yogurt recipe you will ever make. Made with all Natural ingredients, this frozen yogurt can be made in just 5 minutes without an ice cream machine or stirring every 30 minutes.

The honey in this recipe is not just for sweetness; it’s what makes your ice cream scoopable. Sugar in a liquid form is what stops ice crystals forming and keeps it soft.

    Hi Gemma, can I replace cream cheese with other stuff? Thanks

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on May 19, 2017 at 3:55 pm

      Hi Ana,

      You can just use all yogurt but just note your frozen yogurt make freeze very hard without the cream cheese.

      🙂

  2. Melissa on May 6, 2017 at 1:27 pm

    Hi, do you know if the recipe will still turn out well if non-fat cream cheese is used?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on May 7, 2017 at 2:28 am

      Hi Melissa,
      I think it will be good, I cannot see any reason not to use this,
      Gemma 🙂

  3. Abhi on April 10, 2017 at 12:55 am

    Hi Gemma, thanks for many of your treats. I am from Nepal. I tried making both cheese batter and the mango & lime frozen yogurt. I kept it a freezer for 24 hrs. The taste is great but ice crystal has formed. It’s not like solid ice but still is far from the consistencies like that of normal frozen yogurt. I have followed every instruction precisely except i did not have pure honey as they are very rare. I also did not use vaccum container. Is there any tip that could diagnose the problem. Thanks.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on April 10, 2017 at 2:47 am

      Hi there Abhi,
      It is so lovely to have you with us in Nepal.
      I think you did change one other thing! The yogurt must be a strained yogurt, that is what Greek yogurt is. it is natural yogurt, which has had been strained, to reduce the water content, forming a thick rich yogurt. Full fat is best too. Store bought Greek style yogurts may have been thickened by gums etc, so not this one!
      Water freezes like ice, so fruits high in water content like citrus, can also freeze like ice. Store bough frozen yogurt has emulsifiers added so that it remains soft in the freezer. Homemade needs to stand at room temperature for a short time to allow it to soften out. Best to make this, freeze, and serve when it is still soft! These are my best guesses,
      Gemma 🙂

  4. inshira on February 23, 2017 at 4:44 am

    can i use homemade creamcheese as u said…???

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on February 26, 2017 at 8:12 am

      Hi there,
      Yes, you can, this is cream cheese!
      Gemma 🙂

  5. Aruni on January 31, 2017 at 1:45 am

    Hi Gemma,

    Can i use a hand mixture to make the frozen yourget. I want to make the birthday cake one, so no frozen fruits, is it possible ? I have tired ur oreo cheesecake, that was awsome :=)

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on January 31, 2017 at 1:54 am

      Hi Aruni,
      Yes, I cannot see why it would not work, but I would do it a little differently.
      1. Beat the cream cheese with a little of the yogurt to loosen it out. Then add the remainder of the ingredients and continue to beat until combined.
      this should work well for you. It must be Greek/Greek style yogurt, that is strained yogurt, nothing else will do for this recipe,
      Gemma 🙂

  6. Tara on January 23, 2017 at 1:10 am

    This is not dairy free nor vegan if it has cream cheese in it.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on January 23, 2017 at 1:27 am

      Tara, the yogurt is not vegan either! I ma not sure why you thought is should be?
      Gemma 🙂

      • Tara on January 23, 2017 at 1:32 am

        You state: “For Dairy-Free or Vegan Frozen Yogurt recipes, swap out the honey for agave and use a dairy-free yogurt like coconut yogurt.” The cream cheese still has dairy which is also an amimal product.

        • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on January 25, 2017 at 5:53 am

          Tara, I am confused, which recipe are you referring to? obviously if you are vegan you will not add any animal source foods to your recipe.
          Some people who are vegan see honey as vegan, many do not. Without trawling through all of the recipes I cannot think what you mean, it would help me if you let me know,
          Gemma 🙂

  7. Isabella on January 21, 2017 at 9:55 am

    Hi, I’m curious can I use strawberry yogurt instead of Greek I’m really am wanting to make this

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on January 22, 2017 at 9:34 am

      Isabella, the yogurt needs to be strained, like a Greek yogurt is. The ‘water’ content of an un-strained/regular yogurt will cause the frozen yogurt to be a little icy, but you can try it. you may als obe able to find Greek Style yogurt with fruit in your store,
      Gemma 🙂

  8. Christian on October 24, 2016 at 12:53 am

    Hi there,
    I couldn’t do this recipe because I have no cream cheese! Is there a way you could turn normal cheese into cream cheese? Thanks

  9. Profile photo of Myrsa Myrsa on October 11, 2016 at 2:41 am

    Hi Gemma! I love your recipes and I would like to try this one. But I don’t have a food processor. Can I use a hand mixer for this? And how do I use the cheesecloth to turn plain yogurt to greek? Thanks so much for your help!

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on October 12, 2016 at 2:56 am

      Where the recipe does not call for frozen fruits etc it will be possible to do this with a hand mixer. do keep scraping down the bowl to make sure it is blended. To make Greek style yogurt use two layers of cheesecloth in a strainer over a bowl, pour in the yogurt, cover and refrigerate. the whey will separate out over about 8 hours (overnight). You can use the whey in baking too, it is high in protein!
      Gemma 🙂

  10. Lutfiya on September 9, 2016 at 7:35 am

    Hi Gemma. Love your website! I just wanted to check….. Can i use the cream cheese from ur recipe (milk, lemon juice & salt)? Would this work for this recipe? Thank you!

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on September 12, 2016 at 4:15 am

      Hi there, this recipe uses yogurt, Greek yogurt, or strained yogurt, not creamed cheese, I do not think this will work in this recipe 🙂

  11. Profile photo of Hanna Hanna on August 27, 2016 at 8:58 pm

    Hi, I recently did this recipe last night. I have tasted the cream cheese more than any other ingredient in the cake batter. Is thatwhy it’s called the cake batter recipe?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on August 28, 2016 at 2:07 am

      Hi Hanna,
      the flavor ‘cake batter’ is an American invention, and really can be adjusted to your taste. It will taste according to the ingredients, if you do not like the cream cheese flavor, reduce it next time, or add another flavor note to it.
      Gemma 🙂

  12. Lisa on July 26, 2016 at 3:55 pm

    I see in the original recipe that box cake mix is included. Did you ever try it with the cake mix? How does the flavor/texture change when you took out the cake mix? It seems weird to include the mix but curious what your thoughts were.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 27, 2016 at 3:39 am

      Hi Lisa,
      I never use box mixes for anything, it is just too easy to make your own from scratch. I am not sure what you mean by this??
      Gemma 🙂

  13. Ewa on July 10, 2016 at 6:16 am

    Hi,

    I don’t really know what you mean by vanilla – is it vanilla extract, vanilla sugar or vanilla seeds? – because I suppose if it is only the seeds two teaspoons is a lot.

    Your new fan ?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 11, 2016 at 3:13 am

      Hi Ewa,
      I do mean extract, though I like my vanilla, and you can use less if you like. One teaspoon will still give good flavor.
      Gemma 🙂

  14. Ana on June 20, 2016 at 10:09 am

    Can you write this recipe in g and ml please?☺thank you!?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on June 20, 2016 at 10:48 am

      This truly does sound amazing, I need to check this out!
      Gemma 🙂

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on June 20, 2016 at 10:49 am

      Hi Ana,
      do you mean this: 1 cup (8oz/225g) plain yogurt (greek, non-fat or full fat)
      8 oz cream cheese
      3 Tablespoons honey
      3 teaspoons vanilla
      3 Tablespoons sprinkles
      This is as it is written on the website recipe,
      Gemma 🙂

  15. Diana on May 23, 2016 at 6:03 am

    I used Neufchâtel cheese instead of regular full-fat cream cheese. I also used plain Greek yogurt. Even with the full amount of honey added, I felt that the ice cream was a bit bitter or sour, and I believe this is due to the strong flavor of plain Greek yogurt. It was very cute and had a great texture, though. Adding a little bit of sugar free syrup on top of the ice cream greatly improved the flavor. I’ll have to experiment with other toppings or sweeteners to see how I can make the rest of the batch a little tastier.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on May 23, 2016 at 11:57 am

      Hi Diana,
      It sounds like you are making these recipes your own. Yes. you are right, the flavor will change with the change of ingredients, you seem to be manaing to balance it out,
      Gemma 🙂

  16. shazu1990 on April 9, 2016 at 3:52 pm

    Alongside an extra touch of vanilla I added a teaspoon of lemon extract, quarter teaspoon of almond extract and a tiny drop of butterscotch flavouring. Then swirled some natural sugarfree strawberry jam. It tasted just like a birthday party going on in your mouth! Must try gemma x

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on April 10, 2016 at 3:54 am

      Hi Shazu,
      It does sound like a birthday party, such a lot of flavor, well done you,
      Gemma 🙂

      • shazu1990 on April 10, 2016 at 9:47 am

        I mean who needs to add cake mixes when you can achieve the same flavor without all the additives and hydrogenated fats.

        Lemon Extract = gives the flavor of a Madeira cake
        Almond Extract = the taste of fondant icing
        Butterscotch or Caramel extract = adds butteriness and enhances the vanilla richness
        Sugarfree Strawberry jam = the cake filling

        Plus some sprinkled some edible glitter and topped with a maraschino cherry. This is the most amazing fro-yo you can ever have!

        • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on April 11, 2016 at 2:22 am

  18. V2 on March 15, 2016 at 5:56 pm

    I made this and my family said that it is a little sour from Greek yogurt even though I put less yogurt, I used tub cream cheese and nothing else.

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on March 16, 2016 at 2:39 am

      Hi there,
      Are you saying you did not add a sweetener? Greek yogurt is indeed sour, and will remain sour when frozen if you do not sweeten it. I like it like this, but it is not to all tastes! In Greece they will serve it with fresh fruit and honey, and sometimes just with a mild liquid honey. Next time add some sweet note to it,
      Gemma 🙂

    • Mery! on April 17, 2016 at 5:45 am

      I added chunks of chocolate cake to mild the flavor as is a little bit sour! Next time I will use vanilla yogurt instead of the greek yogurt and crumbs of shortbread cookies or chunks of vanilla cake to take the cake batter flavor to the next level! Love this flavor!

      • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on April 17, 2016 at 7:25 am

    Do I have to use the block cream cheese, or can I use the ones that come in the Philadelphia cup?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford on March 4, 2016 at 4:02 pm

      Hi there,
      The block cream cheese works best for cheese cake, it is firmer, and sets better than the tub version,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hi Gemma, I have Vanilla yoghurt in the fridge, would I be able to use that instead of the Greek yoghurt? And if so would I still need to put in the vanilla?
    Looks superb by the way!

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on February 2, 2016 at 10:19 pm

      you sure can. No problem. Maybe add a tiny bit of vanilla to punch up the flavor. Good luck with it 🙂

    This Recipe sounds very tasty and delightful! But I do not have all the ingredients, and when I looked in a grocery store I couldn’t find a mug that’s cool proof. Do you have a link of where you bought your mugs? That would be great.

        You might want to change the statement about dairy free subs. If cream cheese isn’t optional, it can’t be dairy free. BTW, I love your other ideas. My daughter is allergic to egg, dairy, soy, & nuts, so I’m always on the hunt for delicious allergy friendly recipes.

        • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on April 24, 2016 at 11:57 am

          Hi Meryl,
          Yes, you are right, if the recipe requires cream cheese it will not be dairy free. I will check the recipes to correct this, thank you for letting me know. I understand that this is a big challenge for people who have various allergies, I will trey to pay more attention to nutritional requirements in the coming year,

            I have not tried it in this recipe, but my brother has a dairy allergy and I’ve made cheesecake with a dairy free cream cheese. There’s a Mariano’s grocery store in my town that had it.

            Hi Bryanna,
            I am impressed with the number of people who like to prepare food for their siblings, well done you. It is hard to have any food allergy, and dairy is everywhere. I am hoping to develop more recipes this year that are suitable for vegans, who do not use dairy either.
            Thank you for being in touch,
